Interopability with PSP, LMAO! That's gold right there. I mean the rest of the chart is funny (though they really need to lay off it since they've already done it twice), but wow.

Wonder what Nintendo will do now. Wait for more SW, or...?

Well they had MH 3 in Japan, but WSR did nothing here in America. I guess some people in Nintendo are starting to press for a price cut (or a new offer this holiday)

It's too early to say that, Iwata said himself it takes 6-8 weeks for evergreen titles to start moving consoles.  People that are buying it first week are gonna be mostly wii owners, the question is can wii sports resort get word of mouth like other wii games in the past.  First the wii owners buy it then the hope is that the more casual family and friends of these people begin to like the game, this is what happened with Wii Sports.  The main problem I see with WSR is that not all the games are as simple as Wii Sports.  Calibration is gonna be a tough concept for casuals to grasp.

Remember the inFamous "Ham Sandwich" table that Sony gave some months ago? Well is back in the Sony response to the NPD numbers.

Interoperability with PSP not available on Xbox 360 or Wii??? Wow .... Sony's PR at its best I guess.

 

I saw this on NeoGAF. I thought it was pretty damn funny.

How the hell can they create something that's so funny and yet so sad at that same time...  I wanted to laugh AND cry while reading that whole thing.

Wii sales are very depressing year over year, I hope Nintendo knows what they are doing to meet their projections.

They've been down YoY for 9 months. August will be a downer too, so that'll make 10 months of decline.
